I also got to experience a new term, it is a 

Will have to remember to ask Coach John of CTS on what the best way to handle these days?   I was not injured, so I figure it is better to stick it out

Interested in Cycling, Running, Web Design, and reading reviews of products I will never buy. If you see me looking at my phone I am probably playing Pokemon Go.

To the person who stole my fitbit, lets keep it up. We had a great July, now is not the time to loose momentum.
